Small plate of mussels for lunch was very good. Although the mussels were small, I like them small, they're sweeter. With cream sauce. Hamburgers was very good, hubby had it and he's a hamburger inspector expert!😜!

Our first visit to this Talega treasure, and It was more than I expected. It was a Saturday evening, we were pressed for time and picked an early (before 6pm) reservation. Even at that hour the restaurant was almost full and diners all seemed to be having a great time. The ambiance is relaxing, service good, and the menu presents... More

The service and food at Sundried Tomato makes this a local favorite. Ask for Ruben as your waiter. He is the best around. Menu offers a variety of options from steak to seafood to pasta to salads and sandwiches. Never had a bad meal. Full bar too. If in town a definite good lunch or dinner option.

Our San Clemente host Kathy took us here for second time in recent years. Lunch is always a delight in such a comfortable place. When our order was delayed in the kitchen, our waiter added wine to our pinot grigio along with an apology. It was worth the wait. Everything is so fresh, farm to table. I enjoyed a vege-burger....

Cousins getting together for a happy meal with lots of laughter and good food. And this is a restaurant that was perfect for that. The menu is varied; the servers are not pretentious but helpful. And we were given a table in an area that was quiet -- except for us. We get together a few times a year --... More

Good family resturant, their menu has something for everyone. Good service and out door seating. This resturant is located close to the Talega Golf Course.

food is a bit pricey - ate at the bar - service was not with a smile - perhaps a long shift -but for dinner and drinks not many good vibes - got the grumpy look when asked for more bread. mahi mahi was good.

Attended a birthday party on the patio, 3 servers could not have been better. Enjoyed the views and ambiance. Saving the food for last: Had the seared ahi - the largest portion I've ever seen but not short on taste. Will definitely go back and have dinner inside next time. I loved the experience.

Upbeat California cuisine, served in a smart casual environment. the restaurant has a long and creative wine list, at reasonable pricing. Black and white photos of Hollywood gone by adorn the walls while jazz and aromas of garlic waft through the air.
